365 Cards - #189 Charming & #190 Super Sketchy Sunday

I missed the challenge on Saturday over at 365 Cards because I was getting ready for the markets so I chose to combine both Charming and Super Sketchy Sunday and put them into one card. The sketch were were to follow is the one below and my interpretation is below that again.

I added the appropriate charm which is a butterfly button that I cut the shank off of and the rest of the card is based on Super Sketchy Sunday sketch.

Now as promised here is a pic of my little grandaughter Lily who turned one on Saturday with her little fairy outfit. Paul, her dad is holding her as she just blew her candles out (well Paul did anyway). She is a bit shell shocked because a room full of people sang Happy Birthday to her and she is so tired that she was falling asleep in her high chair, so we quickly lit the candles and got her out to sing to her before she went to bed.

Here is Elijah eating his lunch which he did not really want as he had filled up on party food beforehand.

This is a lovely black and white pic that my daughter Courtney took at the party of her niece Sophie. It was in colour originally but Ashleigh changed it to black and white when Courtney emailed it to her. I think it is beautiful indeed. She also had her fairy outfit on but you can't really see it in the pic.

Well that is it for me today.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Great card Michelle - I like the clever use of a button as a charm (file that away for future use) and thanks for sharing pics of your gorgeous grandkids. It looks like a great time was had by all at the fairy party. :D
